Gabriel Volante Biography

Gabriel Volante was born on August 11, 1992, in Florianópolis, the capital city of southern Brazil’s Santa Catarina state.

Sports were a big part of Gabriel’s life while growing up, with football (soccer) being particularly prevalent and an activity he pondered on turning pro. With so much of his efforts allocated towards football, combat sports ran as an afterthought even though capoeira and karate – a sport his father practiced extensively – were a part of his upbringing.

Although curious about jiu-jitsu due to his younger brother’s involvement in this martial art, Gabriel prioritized football and feared grappling could sideline him with an injury. For this reason, it took him a few years before he finally decided to try a BJJ class back in 2009, at the age of 17.

Everson Ávila (Maromba) was Gabriel’s first instructor, a person highly involved with Volante’s early start in the sport.

As a purple belt, Gabriel Volante was training under a full-time regime but lacked the infrastructure required to compete at the highest level in his hometown. For that reason, as a brown belt, Gabriel decided to move to São Paulo – the country’s most challenging jiu-jitsu hub where he joined Celso Venicius (Celsinho) club, XCoach.

Gabriel was promoted to the black belt rank by Celsinho Venicius on June 29, 2019.
